We know that it is not a question of if a fire will start, but when.
Wildfires are natural across Texas and occur in almost all of our ecoregions. The good news is that by taking some simple steps around your home and property, residents can greatly decrease their chance of home loss during a wildfire. Proper plant selection and both construction materials used in the landscape and on the home influence how wildfires burn. This program  will teach the basics on why homes burn and how to become better prepared all while managing your land for personal goals.  Our speaker is Kari Hines, Wildland Urban Interface Specialist with Mitigation and Prevention Department
of Texas A&M Forest Service.  Meeting at 1:00 PM
